The project used three themes to guide the creation of the resources: Astronomy, Fire and Water.
These themes were chosen due to the significant Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge available, and enduring importance today.

In Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, everything on the land is reflected in the sky.
Aboriginal fire management is a body of ancient traditional practices and knowledge about natural systems that are still practised today in some parts of Australia.

The development of these resources was funded through an Australian Government initiative delivered by the University of Melbourne's Indigenous Studies Unit. The resources include the views, opinions and representations of third parties, and do not represent the views of the Australian Government. They have been developed as a proof of concept to progress the inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander content in Australian classrooms. In drawing on the material, users should consider the relevance and suitability to their particular circumstances and purposes.
